The KJV translates Strong's H930 in the following manner: behemoth (1x).
  1. perhaps an extinct dinosaur

    1. a Diplodocus or Brachiosaurus, exact meaning unknown

      Some translate as elephant or hippopotamus but from the description in Job 40:15-24, this is patently absurd.

STRONGS H930: Abbreviations
בְּהֵמוֺת noun masculine behemoth, i.e. hippopotamus (apparently plural intensive of foregoing H929; according to Di Job 40:15 compare De Isaiah 30:6 from an (assumed) Egyptain p-ehemau, ox of the water) Job 40:15 (on identity, compare further BoHieroz. iii. 705); probably also Psalm 73:22 בְּהֵמוֺת הָיִיתִי עִמָּ֑ךְ a behemoth was I with (toward) thee (so Hi De; Che beasts); according to De Or also in בַּהֲמוֺת Isaiah 30:6 the burden of the behemoth of the south (supposed to be a designation of Egypt; but this unlikely, compare Che Di, read therefore) rather beasts of the south, namely of Judah.
